Bring Aaron home, support for the Thompson family

Early on Friday, February 19th, we tragically lost our friend and brother, Aaron Thompson. Aaron — the future doctor, D1 athlete, best friend, and loving brother and son — was shot and killed while suffering the effects of a mental health crisis, choosing life until the end and bravely doing so.

As we continue to mourn Aaron’s passing, we want to support his family to bring Aaron home, cover funeral costs, and pay for related expenses.

We also want to honor him by creating a foundation in his memory and name — to support other athletes and aspiring medical professionals struggling with mental health challenges, seeking to make the world a fairer, more equitable, and healthier place for all. All additional funds remaining after supporting his family will contribute to this goal.

We thank everyone for the love and support that we have seen and felt throughout this time.
